In an effort to be PCI DSS compliant, I took a trustkeeper.net questionnaire. I failed the question that asks
Is the presence of wireless access points tested for by using a wireless analyzer at least quarterly or by deploying a wireless IDS/IPS to identify all wireless devices in use? (SAQ #11.1)
My only wireless access point is outside my firewall, so even if you cracked my wireless you couldn't get inside my domain (unless you crack that too). My firewall doesn't have IPS and I couldn't tell if it had IDS.
I looked around for a wireless analyzer, but what I found was $500, which is a little pricey for my size business. And even if I got it, I'm not sure I would understand what it tells me. Surely there are smaller/less sophisticated businesses that take credit cards and have solved this.
My questions are: What are the risks if someone were to crack my wireless? (Could they read all internet traffic? Just wireless traffic? Just use my internet connection?) And what is the best/cheapest way to test my connection point quarterly? Should I buy the $500 analyzer?
Domain is Windows Server 2000. Firewall is Sonicwall Pro 2040. Router is 8 port D-link.
Update My credit card processor says I can fulfill this requirement by walking around the building and visually searching for unauthorized wireless devices.
